    I'm in a bit of a situation. I go back to school this week and I have 6 of my 15 GCSEs this term and the rest are in june. However, the problem is that I seem to have lost all of my motivation to do any revision but I know that I need to do it.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what to do?

    Thank you

    I'm doing GCSEs and I didn't have much motivation to begin with! But some of my friends who have always studied really hard seem to be having the same problem. As a serial procrastinator I would say break it up into very small chunks - I have about half an hour per subject because I lose concentration. Then you can tell yourself "I only have to do this for half an hour and then I can go off and do something else". Sometimes you get into the flow of things and keep going...

    Otherwise... you can have look at what jobs/A-levels/colleges you need your GCSEs to get into and how awesome it will be to get to do what you want to do next year - all you have to do is get past this.

    Good luck!
